John Olympio

Originally from Togo, West Africa, St. Paul artist John Olympio creates his contempory, abstract works on canvas using paint, red earth carried back from his home country, discarded books and other found objects.  John likens the process of painting to dreaming, saying that – for him – painting is a spiritual exercise.  We love the raw energy and originality of his paintings and assemblage works.
